As more and more jobs are shed on a daily basis, it’s no wonder why an increasing amount of people are leaning toward the prospect of a moneyless society and resource based economy. Usually, as a general rule, we, as a society, are only presented with a problem when (and only when) the solution for that problem also exists. But in this case, many of the things actually causing the problems are also going to be the very same things that give us our solutions, as well. As more and more labor is replaced by robotics and automated systems, it will only become ever more increasingly apparent that we as a society will soon have a very large disconnect between our actual production capacity and the labor needed to produce those goods. Hence, if we are to avoid complete collapse of our system, we must leave some of our old [...]

One of the topics that seems to come up rather frequently when discussing a resource based economy and moneyless society is the subject of food. For instance – what types of food and food production are going to be utilized in a resource based economy, and how will all this be decided? While this is by no means a health and nutrition website, I believe this subject would be good to address, especially considering something that I experienced the other day regarding this issue.
While networking and making new friends on facebook to spread the word about a resource based economy, moneyless society, and the prospect of starting an open-source development, equal-ownership cooperative, I befriended an individual that asked if I was an RBE supporter. I replied “Yes, definitely! I take it you are as well?” This person replied in the affirmative, and then stated “and vegan, also”, as if [...]
If you haven’t heard of New Earth Project, or New Earth Nation as it’s been called recently, now is a good time to check it out. If you like the idea of a Resource Based Economy, or have been following The Venus Project, The Zeitgeist Movement, or any other organization like these, we think you’ll love the New earth Project.
The New Earth Project has been in development for over 15 years, primarily founded through the work of Sacha Stone, among others, and in recent times has been making leaps and bounds toward their goal of developing RBE-like communities all across the globe. As they stand now, on their newly redeveloped, and quite impressive website, if you scroll down a bit and look at the timeline, you’ll see that they are set to launch the first of their communities, which will usher in a new way of thinking and living, [...]
“Thank you for the overwhelming and breathtaking message”. Tears welled up in my eyes as I read the words in the Facebook chat message on my iPhone, from an individual more than 10,000 miles away, whom I had never even seen in a picture or spoken to before in my life, prior to that evening. The extreme feeling of gratitude that was expressed to me in those few words and throughout the rest of the message that followed was nothing other than what had to have come from an absolute unconditional love that knew no bounds and had only the highest regard for any and all life on this planet. It was as if I could feel the vibration sweeping over my body, telling me “This is it! This is why you are here!”
It seemed like a simple enough gesture for me to do. Writing an article about things [...]

Guest Post By Michael Snyder, from The Economic Collapse Blog, on March 10th, 2014
None of the problems that caused the last financial crisis have been fixed. In fact, they have all gotten worse. The total amount of debt in the world has grown by more than 40 percent since 2007, the too big to fail banks have gotten 37 percent larger, and the colossal derivatives bubble has spiraled so far out of control that the only thing left to do is to watch the spectacular crash landing that is inevitably coming. Unfortunately, most people do not know the information that I am about to share with you in this article. Most people just assume that the politicians and the central banks have fixed the issues that caused the last great financial crisis. But the truth is that we are in far worse shape than we were back [...]
The purpose of this post is to gather people together who want to implement a resource based economy, and make a plan of action as to how exactly we are going to get there. There are plenty of individuals out there who want to see a resource based economy come to fruition, but as of yet there are not many projects that actually have a workable plan that will take us to that particular destination. The goal of the Moneyless Society site and organization is to bring as many different people and projects together, under one roof, to collaborate and come to a consensus and form multiple transitional communities. I don’t have all the answers, and I don’t profess that the solutions that we are offering are going to work for sure, but what I do know is there is strength in numbers, and what we need more than anything [...]
It is difficult to talk about the benefits and implementation of a Moneyless Society without eventually referring to it’s Siamese Twin – a Resource Based Economy. For those of you who don’t know, and to clarify, we are not talking about the economy, defined by google, which is “the economy of a country whose gross national product or gross domestic product to a large extent comes from natural resources”. Just to clarify we’re talking about the one that is defined by Jacque Fresco, creator of The Venus Project, as ”a holistic socio-economic system in which all goods and services are available without the use of money, credits, barter or any other system of debt or servitude”.
Basically, a world without money, where everything is free, most everything is automated, and if you don’t want to – you don’t have to work.
Sounds like a lazy man’s world, right? Well, you [...]
